Barusso For Napoli?

Roma midfielder Ahmed Barusso’s agent has dismissed the Ghanaian’s claims that he would love a move to Napoli.
The 22-year-old joined from Rimini in a co-ownership deal this summer, but his involvement in the Giallorossi’s season has been limited to a pair of substitute appearances.
Earlier in the week, Barusso seemed to reveal to Radio Marte that he would welcome a transfer to Napoli.
“I haven’t decided yet what I’ll do in January, but I’ll go wherever I can play,” he stated.
“Napoli are my favourite side as they come from a city which is dominated by football and I have lots of friends there.”
However, agent Leonardo Giusti was keen to play down the significance of his client’s remarks.
“I deny what he said on Radio Marte, perhaps his words were misinterpreted or he explained himself badly,” he told Centro Suono Sport.
“Ahmed doesn’t speak Italian that well and I can assure you that he will be at Roma until June.
“He has a five-year contract with Roma, he loves the city, the club and the fans. and he doesn’t know anyone in Naples.
“Barusso knew that he wouldn’t play that much for Roma and he is here to learn and to be ready if Luciano Spalletti gives him the call.”
